C# name

P: n/a
I recently saw the name of this programming language depicted like:
HTML: C<sup>#</sup>
Is this -somehow- official?

Marco,

What you are looking at is a representation of the name. The <suptag
means that it is supposed to be superscript, elevated. It's still C#, just
presented in the way you would see in musical notation (when viewed in a
browser).

Hope this helps.

Is that additional format for its name also official?

Marco,

No, the format has nothing to do with the name. It's the same thing as
representing the number 11. In decimal, it is "11", in hex, it is "b", in
octal, it is "13", etc, etc. The value is still 11.

Actually, checking the language specification document, the # sign has
superscript format indeed.
As a programmer that likes precise things, it is important to know it. From
now on, in every possible occasion I will render the name correctly.

That's only the titlepage. None of the several hundred appearences of the
name in the spec uses any superscript. Wouldn't say there is anything
official about it.

Yes, only the titlepage.
Nevertheless, I like it that way; besides, the name was borrowed from the
name of the musical note which is written with superscript format (as far as
I know).
